A Celebration of Hope

As we put the finishing touches on the “Celebration of Hope” event we’re hosting this Friday night, we wanted to share a few of our favorite elements of this fabulous evening.  As nursery designers, we feel truly honored to work with all kinds of moms-to-be during the most magical part of their lives. So, we are beyond thrilled to share this special evening with one of our celebrity clients—mom, HOPE crib owner, entrepreneur, undefeated champion and philanthropist Laila Ali. She’s such a kind, friendly, accomplished and compassionate woman; we know that everyone at the event will enjoy the opportunity to meet her!

Since we worked hand-in-hand with Newport Cottages in designing the HOPE Crib, we got a special backstage peek at how these beautiful cribs are made. The wood is absolutely stunning, even before the gorgeous pink paint goes on.

We’re both also admittedly sugar-a-holics (especially Gerri!), and we enjoy all things party-related. So we’re pretty excited about these pie pops by Cakewalk Desserts—they’ll be in the gift boxes. Even though we can’t wait to chat with friends, family and fellow Project Nursery contributors, when paired with the perfect wine—courtesy of Cameron Hughes Wine—we might just spend the evening with our mouths full!

We also love our online shopping! The trendsetting finds on OpenSky are really fabulous, and among the other great items, our gift boxes have $50 OpenSky gift cards. If you don’t already follow Project Nursery on OpenSky, it’s time for you to start!

Fun Stuff in the Gift Bags!

Over the weekend, we made some adorable pink neckties for Gerri’s two adorable sons to wear (and, of course, found a little time to find really glamorous dresses with lots of pink for ourselves). We can’t wait to see those cute little guys dressed up for their mini-portrait sessions by Full Spectrum Photography. David is the genius photographer behind some of our best project photos, and we can’t wait for him to work his magic on our families too!

Each year, October reminds us of the family and friends we’re lucky to call breast cancer survivors, but also of those we’ve lost. While the spirit of this party is celebratory and fun, there’s a little voice in our hearts telling us we have to fight harder. We hope you’ll join us for the fun and help find a cure.

I really like Laila Ali. And I think that photo she placed above the Hope crib is just so sweet. That's the great Muhammad Ali, right?
